I think I need to re-award the guys at Fedora with the Simplest Server Installation Award, courtesy of NairaBytes.net. In about 3-steps, Fedora 27 Server is up and running.

Download images(iso) of Fedora Server here, and burn to discs:

The following are screenshots of Fedora 27 Server Edition. When your media boots up: scroll up and select "Install Fedora 27"

Install-fedora-server

In the Welcome to Fedora screen, select your Language option and click CONTINUE. Its nice to see "Ede Yoruba" representing alphabetically under "English".

Install-fedora-server1

The next screen is the installation summary. It provides an interface to select a keyboard type, time&date, language, etc. To make changes, double-click on the icons one by one, and select your desired options.

Click to "BEGIN INSTALLATION".

Install-fedora-server0

Installation source = Local Media
Software selection = Fedora Server selection
Installation destination = select hard disk(check mark) and automatic partitioning.

In the next screen, 'Configuration', you can set the user and root passwords.

Before:

Install-fedora-server4

After

Install-fedora-server2

The good thing I observe is that at the configuration screen above, installation has already started. After installation, the below is displayed. Click REBOOT after installation.

Install-fedora-server3

The best part is that it comes with a default install of Cockpit which makes access to the server pretty simple. Server is accessible via http://server-ip-address:9090

Install-fedora-server5
